Even if you are the adventurous type who will take your Sport Utility Vehicle off the road, you will probably spend much more time driving around town. Running errands, going to and from work, taking the kids to school, and visiting friends are just a few of the thousands of ways you will use your SUV.

Driving your SUV or four wheel drive pickup around town is just like driving another vehicle around town in most respects. However, because you have a Sports Utility Vehicle or pickup, you may use the utility part for some tasks not suitable for ordinary cars. That's the whole idea of owning this type of vehicle!

We will cover the special uses SUV's afford you and your family including tying stuff on top, carrying stuff inside, hauling firewood, and other topics unique to using an SUV around town.
